Bryan Folks, Best in the Desert CMO, said, “We are happy to report our 2019 Contingency Program is our biggest ever. Ford Motor Company’s new program is the first of its kind in off-road racing, offering cash to racers not only in car and truck classes, but also in UTV, Quad and Motorcycles. Highlights of the F150 EcoBoost Performance awards include large cash payouts within the F150 EcoBoost Performance Awards, and all new for 2019 the Year End Long Haul Awards available to all classes based on their performance over the entire season. Now, even if racers don’t race a Ford, but drive a Ford support vehicle, they can qualify for Ford cash payouts.”

Donald Jackson Best in the Desert Race Operations Manager, said, “At Best in the Desert, we always strive to give back to the racers that support our series.
